and mitt romney has two. >> stephanie: apparently the treese and the polls not the right height in michigan or anywhere. newt gingrich >> romney campaign has yet to find a way of explaining itself and laying out the difference between romney and obama. and i think that's a problem. they seem to have this overly methodical model where they keep saying the same thing, and the world is too fluid arsophisticated for that. >> stephanie: somebody needs to reboot the rom-bot. >> i love hearing newt gingrich giving advise on how to run a campaign for mitt romney. i'm surprised he didn't pause of the word model. and think, ummm models. >> stephanie: [ inaudible ]. >> a two-word axiom we ought to emblazen on everything we have. liberalism kills whether it's in a family, university, education, whether it's in government and especially in denomination liberalism kills. >> stephanie: well. that's a simple line. there's one theme to that radio show there. >> this guy is basically a crypto historian. he believe that jesus personally concurred america and then wrote the consti
's base. where is mitt romney today? springfield, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music venue is the zac brown band which performed at the republican national convention, something that struck me. but they're trying to cut into each other's margins. president obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging
. all right, that's great. thank you. >> it's possible to forgive poor mitt romney for feeling a little overshadowed by his running mate. after all, it's hard to compete with a guy who can catch fish with his bare hands while at the same time promoting a budget that would rob kids of their free lunch meals. how much of mitt romney's campaign belong to mitt romney? you can't help but wonder if mr. romney is just going along for the ride. joining us is tim dickinson of "rolling stone." his new article is in the current issue of the magazine and an excellent read it is, too. tim, i'd like to show you something before we delve into your article. just take a listen to this, tim. >> the only thing that limits you is your god given talent and your own effort. we need to have that dynamic economy returned. do you that by growing the economy and getting people a hand up, not a hand out. teach a man how to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> right. sow doesn't believe in handouts. he won't even feed the fish. he wouldn't feed pigeons in central park for fear they'd be
point lag. is romney letting this election slip right through his fingers? and importantly, why did he dial back his tax cut yesterday? if i don't know what romney's tax plan is, then i don't know how he's going to reach the middle class. in response to mirant last night and my it is pleasure with what mr. romney said, a key very senior mitt romney person calmed me today and says that mitt misspoke on dialing back tax cuts. and this senior person said mitt would like a mulligan and you know what, following beings, i'll give him a mulligan for now. but he has got to stay on message. and that importantly includes next wednesday's crucial debate. it could be his last chance. let's bring in our guest to comment on this. we have harry melver, steve moore oig and phil reducer. steve, i went off the rails and went off hfr-i was so angry at this wall street news story story. romney tempers tax plan, dialing back his tax code, suggesting that he's going to remove tax deductions from the middle class. he didn't talk a bit about take home pay and lower tax rates. and frankly, i was angry and conf
that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right. now, president obama and mitt romney are of course out on the campaign trail. they both happen to be in virginia today trying to rally their own troops, and then they've even got ads, as well, where they are both facing the camera which always is slightly awkward if you ask me and making their personal appearances saying you got to vote for me and this is my plan. in has ad that president obama has, it's actually two minutes long if you watch the whole thing, he talks patriotism and how there's a new economic patriotism. >> governor romney believes with bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer wall street regulations all of us would brought speaker. he'd double down on the same fiscal policies that got us here in the first place. our economy begins with a strong thriving middle class. >> it also involves everybody paying their fair share and keeping their money here instead of the cayman islands. i wonder who that might refer to. he didn't mention that in the two minutes but it was implicit. j.k. rowling has a book coming out today. back
the one guy who says we were building our own coffin, right? today we learned that, you know, romney was talking about harvesting these companies. i mean, again, i think he h a fuenfls a candidate. when you hear this lack of compassion, 47%, again, it plays into a central narrative and other things we have heard about him. >> okay. we've got a little bit of that tapehat karen obliquely referred to then. let's take a listen. >>ainapal i an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully five to eight years later to harvest them at a significant profit. >> now, that was taken from motheron min onnowoweas edited. it was clearly some kind of internal bain capital business. your reaction to that tape, michael? this man saying in his own words that his business wasn't about creating jobs. we know it never wa asut investing, piling on debt, and then harvesting value out of the companies. >> i think what it does is show the challenge of moving from the business world to politics. it's some
. with the media saying one thing, and at my gut, i say, well that is not the case. >>guest: you are right. romney advisors are saying this got us here despite the media. >>neil: the republican guys are saying that was getting the nomination, very different in the election. >>guest: this is highspotsers that are saying this. it is different than me and you and the guys at "new york times" or whoever criticizing him. these are his money guys criticizing him. >>neil: on the issue of simpson-bowles where they think they found, the opponent, a weakness, the inconsistency, react to this. how will the wall streeters react to this? you mentioned simpson-bowles, sir, and you voted against that. so your critics --. >>guest: that part. >>neil: your credits say you talk a good game but you do not deliver the goods. >>guest: here is what people do. if you don't like the plan that someone put on the table put your plan on table. that is what i d i passed a budget through congress. mitt romney offered a plan. president obama hasn't done that. he disavowed simpson-bowles and offered no alternates. >>guest: he is
because he won the hispanic vote over 35%. he got 40%. mitt romney's at about 20% to 25% right now. he's too far behind. and states are going massively for the president. >> what polls do you read that you actually think are right? if you looked at rasmussen, you'd think it's a jump ball race. >> i do think it will be very close. i think talking about three or four electoral votes, i think we're also talking about those eight states that are critical. the ohios, the colorados and nevadas, floridas. but img t think the president i moving forward. >> the latest polls actually show president obama has a big lead in states like ohio and florida. do you believe those polls? >> they move around, but i do think that he got a bump after the democratic convention. no republican has been elected president without winning ohio. so i think that's -- mitt romney will have to rebound. and i see the debates where he's a good debater. he won 16 out of 20 republican debates by his own count, but i think he did well. >> i'm going to make this hard for you. if you were advising romney right now, what wou
and anyone for mitt romney is a absolute republican but you mentioned th break in the race. iowa is one of the swing states broken in the president's favor right now by a few points and anything in the bank is value added but if the dynamic changes and you have more undecided voters out there what the obama campaign argues is they have time and resources to those people hard core supporters voted. the romney campaign would say that's an exaggeration and they say republicans are more traditional. they pour the resources at the end. this is a growing and an important national trend and it give your test run if you will to your organization on the ground. >> in iowa city for us mr. magic wall himself john king. thank you. >>> don't forget as we ment watch this first presidential debate in denver colorado. romney versus obama next wednesday 8:00 eastern right here cnn. >>> just in. news from space. we are just getting word of a pretty big discovery on mars. folks, it involves water. that's next. pass pass here's what happened... i was talking to my best friend. i tol
politicians wld rather talk about anything but thecy,ndhe w looking at right there, mitt romney, seems to be exhibit 1 in daniel henninger's argument. how does mitt romney turn it around and laser focus on the economy and make the sale next week in time? >> wes goi tbed bee le are feeling a little bit better about thei lives. you know, they've paid off their credit card debts. their 401(k)s are back where they were. you kn, as steve ratner jt showed, their housing prices -- values are goi up. you know wha i wld ds - yo, john mccain very, very successfully made government seem foolish by picking out stupid earmarks. you know, the sgest argument i've seen mitt romney m i , yo know, the government -- the government's regulatory apparatus has bogged down. you know, i would have him go at stupid regulation tricks. you know, there are all tse silly regs that have been paed, u kn,n tls thoused to vote for or vote against, joe. and i think that he has to run against the federal government at this point rather than against the economy. >> willie? >> john? sorry. thout joe was gngoay th i ree wi
in place. what do you make of this movement now on -- by folks on the right, you saw mitt romney earlier this hour trying to make there's a democratic issue? this is something that the president somehow did on his own or just put this on the plate of democrats in congress and not take any sort of -- not -- to say they're not accountable for the votes? >> well, the goal of the sequester was to try to put some pressure on ourselves to address a long-term balanced bipartisan solution to deal with the debt and deficits in this country. as you point out, when we pass the budget control act, that included the sequester, it was a very strong bipartisan vote and the senate and in congress. it was signed off on by the leadership on both sides and both houses. and so, i think this is an effort that we need to follow through on. the goal was never to let the sequester to go into effect, never to do across the board cuts. i don't know anybody who thinks that's a good idea. so what we need to do is roll up our sleeves and come up with a long-term solution that addresses all aspects of the budget, the
to magically right lf t i -os thought it was an interesting -- that sound we played from romney, kind of backing away from his announcement that everybody's tax res are going to go down. it is, i think, an atput math mat kaly impossible. to balance the budget and cut rates you have to close loopholes on middle income earnings which means their taxes go up. >> it's responsive to the effective line in the speech about take two tax cuts and cal er p40 years the hasi republican solution has been a tax cut and david's chart proves the point. years and years ago, decades, when rate was % top earner rate, cut from 70% to 50%, yes, mas a really big differen. w tte' cngm to 35 or 35 to 32 or 32 to 31, you're not getting much bang for your buck. really each incremental piece that you take off from the revenue matters in the budget. i think they're not stup about this, they know tre's not a lot to be gained from saying we g you an extra 3%. they may try to get in front of it or erase it as quickly as possible. >> the bigger issue, as we talk about, putting more money in the pockets of a higher
of opportunity for romney to come back. the only point i'm trying to make is right now, and remember polls are a snapshot of what's happening right now, right now obama clearly is ahead in these key battleground states. that's very significant. it can have a demoralizing impact on a lot of republicans and a lot of republican money from that perspective as you point out. but at the same time, it can make the democrats overconfident. they may decide, you know what, he doesn't need anymore money, he's doing just fine. or i don't have to show up and vote because the president's going to win. so there's a two edged sword to being ahead or behind at this point in the polls. this race is continuing. it's by no means over. anybody who says it's over is being ridiculous. >> and speaking of the '80s, i actually started my career in the '80s, although i love that compliment from you. >> you look much younger than that. >> you can be on every day. thank you, wolf blitzer. >>> the election's close, debates are even closer. the first debate is next wednesday night, cnn special coverage starts 7:00 p.m.
appeared >> -- then governor romney. >> right now, you're trying to get a sales tax increase to pay for pre-k. can you defend, sitting next to someone who does not like texas famously, the decision to brought to market with a tax increase even for something you so strongly believe in? many mayors are with yo but there are a lot of elected officials and san antonio who are not with you. >> basically, i fundamentally believe that brainpower is the currency of success. in the 21st century global economy. those communities that created will be the communities that thrive in our market economy. and those communities that do not will be the ones who fall behind. san antonio, i believe, needs to make a huge investment in education. that investment is not limited to more money. it also means getting parents involved. it also means expecting more from everybody along whole education ecosystem, from administrators to policy-makers to teachers come expecting more out of everyone. so what i have on the table in san antonio is basically a 1/8 cent sales tax that will cost the median household in the cit
, but there had been signing of trouble there. there were signs of trouble right away. remember when mitt romney went a little rogue himself on the subject of libya and essentially accused the president of treason. that's going way out on limb there. the vice president's job is to go right on that limb with him and cover the president's pack. but he didn't do that. he let mitt romney hang out there on his own. if there's a problem here, i imagine it has to do with ambition. that's what roger simon was touching on. paul ryan was supposed to bring excitement to the romney campaign. instead he brought a lot of pants on fire ratings from the fact checkers. mitt romney was supposed to be paul ryan's ticket to the white house but things aren't going so well and paul ryan is probably thinking i've got a mill stone around my neck. this isn't going to help me for 2016 at all. if there is bad blood between them, that's what it is. they're separate ambitions are not being satisfied by one another. >> certainly that springtime appearance in florida that was secretly recorded is not doing the ticket any faye

(laughter) we ain't teaching mitt romney, mitt romney's teaching us. (laughter) so that's why president obama is the luckiest dude on the planet. although you have to wonder watching romney how the hell did this guy even get the nomination? >> it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone. >> we will have the first permanent base on the moon. >> commerce, education, and the-- um, what's the third one there? >> her little daughter took that-- took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation. >> commerce, education and-- um-- the um-- um-- >> okay, libya. president obama supported-- the uprising, correct? >> president obama wants to-- once said he wants everybody in america to go to college. what a snob! >> oops. >> jon: oh, right. that concludes our segment "mitt romney is the s.e.c.-luckiest dude on the planet." welcome back! my guest tonight is the reigning king of jordan. welcome back to the program ki

obama was in a position to win that election. right now he's in a strong position. governor romney's campaign is clearly flailing, but there is still a lot of uncertainty underneath these numbers. i'm just being honest, because i think democrats need to keep that perspective. if governor romney does well in the debate -- i don't know he will, but if he does that's a turning point. there's an enormous amount of time left in the election. democrats and the bahama campaign dish democrats need to keep their eye on the ball. this election is not over contrary to what polls may say. >> absolutely. it is not over, which is why it's so fascinating so much time is spent on allegations that the polls are inaccurate as opposed to conversations lending help to the romney campaign if it can be helped at this point coming up with a list of loopholes to close. that's just one thing. let me bring to the conversation quinton kidd, he's a political science professor in virginia. thank you so much for your time. we have romney and obama in virginia right now. we have this segment called purple rain f

you saw there, chris, isthntewith my colleague ron mott right before an event in ohio. you have behind the scenes governor romney saying that this is an example of his empathy, that universal health care in massachusetts. he goes on the stage and says something complely different. we, i,s clearly a tortured candidate when it comes to his positions. when you look at his record when he was governor of massachusetts, he was a more moderate republan. he moved to a far right to win the nomination. 's bnaralyzed b tha neit appease the far right of the republican party. you have this now dilemma going into in the last 40 sore so days of the election. his message hast worked and he's come across because of this new video is cold and indifferent to the flight of hard-working people. so now he's trying to show an elm pathetic side that contradicts his earlier positionsnd statements. it's not a good place for any candidate at thi time of the eltion. 'sea broor the romney campaign. >> does it speak to the problem that you saw coming early in in that romney had to take a certain stance it to win th
. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
's by far the most important debate, chris. you tell me whether governor romney has the right strategy here. >> it's in politico. we don't know the veracity of it. we don't know whether that's what they mean to do. but we know this. that if you are explaining, you are losing. what governor romney has been doing a lot of is trying to direct the record on president obama. in the sound you just played in that video the president said we know we don't get it right but we don't care. it's cool because it's politics. mitt romney is not going to do anything that shames the president into being a nicer guy or changing the way that he describes mitt romney because remember this has been the most rough, absolutely negative reelection campaign ever run by an incumbent. if mitt romney thinks he can change that by correcting the record he is making a mistake. >> i would say what's happening is what happens in every election. what we saw two weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's
, the president, i think to do it again. how does the romney campaign respond to that? >> reporter: that's right. if president obama were to win the state of virginia because no democrat had won it since lyndon johnson in 1964, he would be the first democrat to do it twice in a generation. so obviously it is a big challenge for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt romney was here just about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts o
been making so many headlines right now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has
it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among
's not saying mitt romney has to go further right. he didn't like his point of view necessarily on abortion, but he said if he stuck with rape, incest, life of the mother and skrus pouned his fist -- does that change it? >> no, there's a reason the romney camp has been trying to say this election is about the economy. we heard this during 2010. this is a libertarian argument about it's the economy. about reducing the deficit and debt. virtually every poll. who's better equipped to deal with the deficit and debt. the more they play to the religious right on social issues, the more they risk alienaing these centrist voters. >> did you disagree? >> absolutely. the latest polls show that people trust obama more now with the economy. this economy issue solely is a losing issue for romney as the economy improves, but also it fails to reck thiz people care about other things other than just the economy. >> pastor jeffers, if i may, i was making the distinction about not just the economy, but deficit and debt. so, i appreciate your desire to have your nominee really focus on playing to the base
on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl ro who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each ughly e same pcentage the republicans and democrats as their ponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're most likely going to vote, 36% say they're democrats, 27% republicans and 33% independents, so as you can see, the math that karl rove laid out doesn't cessarhave to so. ere's ing in our panel h and talk about all of the polling here we do at cnn and howt rks. cnn poll one thing you may have heard is that the polls out there are assuminga higher turnout this election than last. a lot of people say that can't be so there wa so much passi
believe you. stuart: and dow jones industrials average 56 higher. 13, 468 right now. mitt romney told voters his tax plan might not decrease tax bills as much as they might expect. is he backtracking and telling the truth? and joining us is former new york mayor rudy guiliani. if is he backtracking if they don't get the 20% tax rate cut and cut the deductions which these people get even more, is he backtracking? >> i think he's trying to put the emphasis on deficit reduction because many' probably, guessing, i haven't seen it, in the polling probably concerning people more than anything else. as long as people can feel, i'm not going to get a tax increase, might think he's producing about as much enthusiasm as optimism as he needs to produce to get our economy going. stuart: i'm reading between the lines, you don't care for that. >> i'm a big tax cutter, cut taxes 23 times as mayor, 3 billion. it worked for me. i cut the hotel tax, collected more from the lower tax than the higher tax, i'm convinced if you got rid of the sales tax in new york you'd see another 500,000 jobs here. you'd
that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f
's a continuation of the old plan. we can't afford four more years of the last four years, all right? >> reporter: governor romney not only said that he would stop shrinking the military but would add to the active duty force and one of the figures came when he quoted ronald reagan. >> peace comes through strength. i want to have a military that's so strong no one wants to test it. >> the people that are out there fighting these wars, we owe them support forever and i think governor romney is totally supportive of that. >> reporter: but that's not the opinion of veteran jim dillard who represented springfield for 30 years in the virginia house of delegates. >> now they talk about cutting the domestic spending by 20%. if they do that, that's $11 billion cut to veterans programs and i don't think veterans ought to be ones to pay for tax cuts to the wealthy and so we need a president who is going to look out for veterans, who will look out for the middle class and lead us back to prosperity. >> i need your help. we've got a win in virginia. >> reporter: peggy fox, 9 news now. >>> president obama
